Happy Waterloo Day

Currently in the chaos of buying a new home, hence very little time for all things Napoleonic and 28mm.

Here is the unit I'm currently working on - 56 men of the 23rd (Royal Welch) Fusiliers. Apparently, being fusiliers, all companies wore the winged epaulettes, which makes them among the most fiddly and time-consuming units to do, although at least they're better than the 52nd in that I'm having a nice break from all those buff crossbelts!


The new place (fingers crossed) has a brick outbuilding where I might be able to finally unpack some of my Waterloo army and have them out on display. I will try to post more when we are settled and I am able to give this project my proper attention again.

  1. My Waterloo Day celebrations included a fast-forward replay of the 1970 film - it may have a few issues but some of the visuals are the greatest period recreations ever. This was followed by Richard Holmes' War Walks episode on the battle - in my humble opinion one of the best historians of the last 20 years.
